The following press release was received today:

Statement of Carolyn W. Colvin
Acting Commissioner of Social Security:

“I have directed an immediate halt to further referrals under the Treasury Offset Program to recover debts owed to the agency that are 10 years old and older pending a thorough review of our responsibility and discretion under the current law to refer debt to the Treasury Department.

If any Social Security or Supplemental Security Income beneficiary believes they have been incorrectly assessed with an overpayment under this program, I encourage them to request an explanation or seek options to resolve the overpayment.”

Some of the recoupment of money has to do with relatives of a deceased person not reporting his/her death and continue to spend that money. Any outage about government seeking repayment of that taxpayer asset ??????????????????

Untrue resident.....Do the children have a moral obligation to return the money that their parents stole ? Or should that be the moral obligations of the taxpayers at large. I would think that most children would be happy ... More ›

No problem taking from their estate. However, when the estate doesn't have enough resources to match the debt; the debt doesn't go to the children. As government by definition requires revenue to operate, payment has to ... More ›

Untrue Resident.....Debts of the departed are often collected from their estate. Overpayment to an individual is almost always known, so the non-notification of the error from a government agency is a theft from the taxpayers. ... More ›
